MetadataShow full item record
The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) will spend around P10 million for its free fingerling dispersal project in Western Visayas this year. In an interview Tuesday, BFAR-6 director Remia A. Apari said the fingerling dispersal is their contribution to achieve the mandate of the Department of Agriculture (DA) to provide affordable and available food on the table of every Filipino. Tilapia fingerlings will be released to coastal and upland areas and are expected to benefit some 100 fisher folks. Initially, “hito” or catfish juveniles will be provided to some 60 to 60 fisherfolk. The fingerlings will come with the corresponding feeds requirement, which will also be provided free, she said.
